This is a monologue about my father. One of the few purely autobiographical pieces I’ve ever written. When Bill Richardson interviewed me, he asked why so much of my writing involves the troubles surrounding human skin, as in the character of Lumpy in the Longlight Legacy. The real answer to the question is in this piece.
